(1) KABANC members may participate.
Judicial Endorsements Committee
The purpose of the KABANC Judicial Endorsements Committee is to promote the appointment of qualified judicial candidates to the federal and state judiciary, who have demonstrated a commitment to the Asian Pacific American community or to any other minority or disenfranchised group. We evaluate potential candidates as well as identify and encourage qualified Asian Americans to apply for judicial positions.
If you are interested in our endorsement, or are contemplating applying for the bench in the near future, please contact the Judicial Endorsements Committee Chair.
Pro Bono Committee
KABANC holds pro bono clinics in San Francisco and San Jose. We provide interpreters for our clinic clients for those who may need language support.
KABANC also encourages its members to volunteer at local legal outreach programs and clinics. Many Asian Americans, including Korean Americans, in the Bay Area cannot afford legal services. This is where you can make a difference!
Please contact our Pro Bono Committee Chairs if you are interested in volunteering for the pro bono clinics. We look forward to your active involvement.
The Social Committee strives to foster relationships between KABANC members and affiliate organizations. We believe that building strong relationships within the legal community nurtures professional and personal growth, and we strive to ensure that our KABANC members have the opportunity to develop these relationships.
As part of this goal, the Social Committee organizes a number of events, including mixers, joint events with other organizations, and various other outings. If you are interested in joining the KABANC Social Committee, please contact Social Chair Alex Kwok.
The goal of the Women’s Committee is to promote and support the career advancement and professional development of female attorneys. The Committee seeks to provide women with opportunities to network as well as advocate for greater representation of women in the legal field.
